Brooks' Newborn Pictures



























Brooks Vaughn Fitzgerald

Brooks Vaughn Fitzgerald joined our family on July 23 at 7:11 p.m. He is absolutely perfect and weighed in at 8 lbs 4 oz and was 20.5 inches long.   He had a head of dark hair (and hasn't lost any of it!)  We are completely smitten with this guy and love him so much.  

Labor was a little bit tougher this time around.  We were induced, as I was almost dilated to a 4 at 38.5 weeks.  I was in labor for about 11 hours and only pushed for about 20 minutes.  What made this round a bit different from the first was that my epidural quit working right when I was dilated to a 10.  Thankfully, after 10 minutes of strong contractions, the CRNA was able to give me a bolus to get me through.  

Our little guy was (of course) worth every bit of it.  He is so laid back and I didn't think it was possible, but he's a better baby than Reese. (And that sweet girl was a good baby.). He has a fussy period every night from about 6-9, but that's the only thing that upsets him.  He cries when he's hungry, and that's about it!!   We love this sweet boy so very much and have snapped tons of pictures the first two months of his life.   He'll have to get use to that camera!!
